Mt Eliza is buzzing with the news it will soon have its very own music festival, showcasing a huge range of talent from right here and across Melbourne.
The exciting one-day event, to be held in the village centre on Saturday February 6, 2016, will be a celebration of all genres featuring a variety of DJs and bands, performing in venues during the day with a small stage in the village centre. There will also be buskers, stiltwalkers, face painters and a silent disco.
Come nightfall and you will find more live music performances at a number of local restaurants and licensed venues in town.
Tim Meyer, who is organising the inaugural festival with a small group of volunteers and ongoing assistance from Alison Doherty and the Mt Eliza Chamber of Commerce, said he was surprised at how quickly the event got off the ground after he initially posted the idea on a Mt Eliza community Facebook page.
“Everyone in town was up for it and people have been very supportive,” he said.
“The chamber of commerce got right behind it and helped get venues onboard, so we’re incredibly grateful for their support.”
Tim, a Mt Eliza resident, is in the music industry himself, running Melbourne-based company Cobraskin, an artist marketing agency that works with emerging music producers and DJs.
While still in the early planning stages, the Mt Eliza Music Festival has already had a number of talented musicians sign on.
There will also be multicultural performers, youth bands and a Boho Blends DJ booth.
Stay tuned for more exciting announcements in the coming months!
